Currently in the UK, it is possible that you can become a Bowen practitioner and treat clients without accreditation to any outside organisation.
Here at Bowen College we are raising the standard of Bowen education in the UK.
Our CBHT Core programme is accredited by BTPA. What this means for you is that you will receive accredited Bowen training, aligned with national government standards if you choose to train with us.
We are also an approved training provider with the International Institute for Complementary Therapists.
At this present time it is up to you as an individual therapist, once qualified, to affiliate with a professional associaton that may enhance your professional standing. Below you will find a number of professional organisations who can do just that.
The following organisations offer different packages that you can research to decide which fit best for your needs and financial commitments. Please contact us if your professional association / organisation is not on this list and you would like to know if Bowen College Courses are accepted by them.
